Probably one of the most beautiful parks in Manila and in the Philippines, Paco Park is a national park and cemetery located in the center of Manila city. The park was originally meant to be a cemetery for wealthy Spanish families during the 1800s. It was designed by the talented Nicolas Ruiz who made it a verdant landscape thriving with old trees, bushes and lawns. It was converted into a national park in 1966.
It was here that Dr. Jose P. Rizal was buried by the Spaniards after his execution in Luneta. Paco Park is also the final resting place of Mario Gomez, Jose Burgos and Jacinto Zamora, three priests that were executed by the Spanish in 1872 for their participation in an uprising against Spain.
Chirpy birds, green havens and gurgling fountains beckon visitors to this beautiful park that is truly a slice of heaven.

It's located near at the heart of Manila. But you'll be surprised since this place gives you a feeling of being in another place. It's quite, serene and will give you the feeling of being calm. This place is really good for private weddings, since the place is not that big and not too small. If you wanted to go to a secluded place just to breathe and be alone, I would recommend this to you. There's an entrance fee but forgot how much was it. You can come anytime you want.
Had a good time here, specially when having a shooting with my classmates for a project in our school. This is a common place for Paconians to shoot. Of Course there are specific rules and regulations which are observed to keep the park clean and orderly, specially since it is a cemetery. The choir in the Church is also outstanding, they give me goosebumps and the atmosphere of being in peace
